I do tend to agree, though it's been on the books two years already now. I suppose these things take time. Watch, my son will be over 18 if and when it does get repealed and then we still won't be able to do it even if we wanted to.

The additional amounts for children only apply to non British children. If you are serious about looking into process (although I understand you probably aren't really thinking about it at the moment) head on over to the MBTTUK section - you'll get all the info there

Well, my mate said he could probably get me in his place making £20K-ish so if it came down to it, I could work something out more likely than not. It would be better to be able to not have to worry about it, in case we ever did want to move.
Yes I think you are behind the times on the salary you would make over there.

I'm thinking out loud, really. Technically, though both of my children are American, my daughter should qualify as British through me (my son isn't really mine) so that'd be just one but still - £22K is mental as a minimum income requirement, especially since third party help is not allowed.

Perhaps I am. I didn't realise it had changed that much. Although, I think the pay in Northern Ireland is a bit lower in general than on the mainland.

Completely off topic really maybe you should consider retraining as a spark - can't recall when I last earned less than what the government is asking spouses to be earning - a good guess would be back in the 90's when I finished my apprenticeship. My oldest nearly got an apprenticeship in 2002 ish and that would have paid 12k then (turned out he's colour blind )

That is a good idea. I would worry about my mild streak of utter incompetence, though

What is far more important than the antics of Farage is news this morning that the UK Government is seeking to alter the rules in the UK regarding the power of the European Court of Justice.
Farage can drivel on for 7 days/week , 24hours day but he has as much influence over matters as does anyone of us on this forum.

Are you mixing up with the European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg?
BBC News - Tories plan human rights challenge

Nothing to do with the EU Court of Justice.

(Not sure UK can alter the rules, it would be opt out of the Convention, difficult when UK was one of initial signatories)

Thanks for the correction, must have missed some of the news due to sound of crunching breakfast cereal.

UKIP

The news prompted a statement from one of the Gibraltar UKIP MEPs Julia Reid.

“I am delighted with this decision. I just hope that Spain, having behaved so badly for so long, against all the principles of international law and fair play, listen. Your call Mr Rajoy. You have allowed your authorities to play fast and loose for months, your have condemned thousands of your own citizens to misery where they get caught in the queues you have created as they merely try to get to work. Gibraltar is proven to have acted correctly, both in the matter of the Reef, but also on the key industry of Bunkering. As we always knew it would,” she said.
